Have Polemic, Will Travel.
You're not seriously suggesting that any self-respecting American wear headgear designed for metric football are you? [shudder] Come on, Pooh, why not a decent American football helmet? Plus, the hard shell makes for better spearing!
I'm worried about hurting the wall as well...
Have walls formed an interest group? How much money have they raised? How many voters can they turn out? And how many Congressmen have they bought?
The truth is out there.
And what the hell is wrong with metric-football? I take it there will be no Germany '06 parties in the Pick household?
Metric football involves way too much running. Plus, there's no (legal) violence on the field of play. Slightly more seriously, I just find it to be a dull sport. Never played it (never wanted to), and I do not understand it's appeal in the first world. (The appeal in poorer parts of the world is understandable, given the relative cheapness of the sport in terms of equipment.) But team sports are all rather arbitrary, so one's preference for such is more a matter of where and when one grew up. Down South, if there ain't a funny shaped pointy ball involved, and large men colliding at full speed, we just don't care.And finally, I do not understand the point in several millions of years of evolution being denied. One can't use one's hands? That's just stupid! Our ability to use our hands while ambulatory is our evolutionary birth-right, and I refuse to de-evolve! Frankly, soccer is only slightly less intelectually offensive than ID.... verification word: fowksizmSounds like an ancient Japanese rice ritual.....
